Capturing the Atmosphere by Dave Santillanes
September 28 @ 8:30 am - September 30 @ 4:30 pm$450
This workshop is for all levels and will focus on designing a studio painting from plein air studies. The first day will focus on painting outdoors. Artists will paint plein air and will learn to quickly gather the necessary visual information needed to complete a painting in the field. Learning how to
simplify a landscape and interpret color relationship will be a primary focus of this workshop but other fundamental concepts will also be discussed including the importance of values, shapes, and edges.
In final two days of the workshop, artists will learn to analyze the information they gathered in the
field, interpreting color and value relationships in order to create depth in landscape painting. Many
outdoor principles will be discussed, but with a greater focus on composing a finished piece.
There will be slide presentations, demonstrations, critiques, and lots of one on one instruction.
